I am novice using Indesign CS4 on Windows Vista 64 bit. I am using the brochure template "brochure3.indt" from the built in templates. Page 2 of the template has a black box or background extending across pages 2 and 3, beginning on the lower right hand corner of page 2. I want to delete the box, but I cannot select it. How do I delete this thing?
InDesign is not designed as a "jump in and create anything" package -- you need a bit of background. Follow the advice in
to get some basic education.
(Because your "problem" is an extremely basic one: the black rectangle is drawn on the Master Page, and so you could either delete it there, or apply another master page, or shift-ctr-click it and then delete.)
